Fun Magic Party Activities

What are you going to do at your magic birthday party? Here are a few fun activities that are easy to plan and set up and will be great fun for the kids!

Pull the Rabbit from the Hat

Supplies:

  • A Black Hat
  • Crayons or markers
  • Several Metal Paperclips
  • A Magic Wand
  • A String
  • A Small Magnet
  • One piece of white paper
  • Scissors

Get Ready:

  1. Fold a piece of paper into thirds length-wise, then fold the same paper into thirds width-wise. You will have 9 squares.
  2. Draw a picture of the same rabbit head in each square.
  3. Colour each rabbit a different colour and leave one white.
  4. Cut the paper into 9 squares along the folds.
  5. Secure a paperclip to each rabbit.
  6. Drop the rabbits into the hat.
  7. Tie one end of the string to the magnet
  8. Tie the other end of the string to the magic wand.

How to Play:

  1. Have kids take turns dipping the magnet hanging from the wand into the hat.  Tell them to move it around and “fish” for the rabbits.
  2. At the end of each child’s turn, return their rabbit to the hat.
  3. Ensure that the kid cannot see inside the hat while “fishing.”
  4. If the child gets a coloured rabbit, give them a small prize
  5. If the child is the “lucky winner” and pulls the white rabbit from the hat, have a larger prize for them.
  6. Keep playing until everyone has had a turn!

Pick a Colour Game

Supplies:

  • Crayons or markers

How to Play:

  1. Ask one of the kids to select a crayon or marker while you stand with your back to the audience.  Tell them to keep it a secret.
  2. Ask the child to the mystery crayon or marker in your hands.
  3. Pretend to concentrate for a few moments as though you are attempting to use your powers to “see the colour.”
  4. While you have the children distracted, make a mark on your thumbnail that is small enough to be undetectable.
  5. Then tell the volunteer to remove the crayon or marker from your hand.
  6. Have them hide it somewhere totally out of your sight.
  7. Before you turn around, take a look at your thumbnail to see what colour it was.
  8. Turn around and blow the kids away by knowing the colour.
